Instructions on how to make the headpiece:
Step 1: Make a stem for the headpiece

Step 2: Make branches for the headpiece

2nd, braid the two pieces of copper wire below the transparent glass bead to a desired length (as shown in the picture);
3rd, fold a part of the left copper wire and string a glass bead to the folded position. Then, braid the two pieces of the left copper wire below the transparent glass bead. Do the same with the right copper wire;
4th, repeat the above step to make 4 more such patterns. In this way, a branch comes into being;
5th, continue to make more such branches. To make the headpiece look layered, please make these branches in different length.
Step 3：Combine the stem with branches and add brass chain
1st, combine the stem made in Step 1 with the branches made in Step 2 one by one by wrapping the excess braided part of the branches onto the stem (as shown in the picture);
2nd, cut another copper wire and attach a silver brass chain onto the headpiece stem with the copper wire.
Step 4：Add white pearl beads
1st, cut another copper wire and wrap one end of the copper wire onto the stem;
2nd, string a 6mm white pearl bead and fix it onto the stem by wrapping the copper wire onto the stem. Then, string a 4mm white pearl bead and fix it onto the stem in the same way. Please note that there should be a space between the 6mm white pearl bead and the 4mm white pearl bead;
